What areas are typically treated?
Botulinum toxin can be used to treat any area of the face and can also be used in combination with dermal filler for best results.
Typical areas include:
- Glabella lines (frown lines between the eyebrows)
- Forehead lines
- Crows’ feet (laughter or worry lines)
- Bunny lines (horizontal lines across nose)
- Smoker’s lines
- Non-surgical eyebrow lift
- Marionette lines (‘sad lips’)
- Dimple Chin
Botulinum toxin can also effectively treat
- Excessive underarm sweating – an embarrassing troublesome problem
- Teeth grinding – a chronic problem that can cause considerable discomfort
How is it carried out?
A series of injections are given in the desired area using an extremely fine needle is used to administer the treatment.
Is it painful?
In the hands of a practised and trained clinician, most clients experience only mild discomfort. The application time will last a few minutes and the whole treatment is finished in less than five minutes.
When can I notice the results?
You should see the benefits from 7-14 days and the effects may last between 3-4 months.
How many treatments will I need?
To maintain a youthful rejuvenated appearance, you should consider having regular visits.
Receiving Botulinum toxin on a regular basis means that the same muscle groups are injected which in time begins to relax these muscles more naturally until the point at which each treatment actually lasts longer.
Can anyone benefit from this treatment?
Botulinum toxin has been proven to work extremely well on active lines, and can be administered between the ages of 18-65 years.
Unfortunately, the treatment cannot be carried out during pregnancy, breastfeeding or in the case of a neuromuscular disorder (myasthenia gravies).
Are there any side effect?
Botulinum toxin will work well for dynamic lines, however, for deeper lines consideration of dermal fillers may need to be discussed.
Reported side-effects, should they occur, are mild-moderate and are of temporary duration. At most these may include tenderness, bruising, temporary headache, and mild inflammation (redness of the area). Please discuss further with the clinician if you are at all concerned.

‘I was extremely pleased at how easy and painless having Botox was. I had my forehead treated and felt amazing. The results were clearly visible within 3 days. There was no pain and I could easily have fallen asleep because I was made to feel so relaxed. After just one treatment I would definitely recommend Kings Skin Clinic to any friend who was considering having any treatments done. I am looking forward to having my next treatment as it certainly has boosted my confidence and makes you feel very fresh and healthy. The tired, stressed look has gone. Thank you.’ Jennifer
